Bhutan Times - - Home - Sonam

13 June 2016: His Majesty The King graced the Rinchen Ter­zoed Wang in Lhuentse, with Her Majesty The Gyalt­suen and His Royal High­ness The Gyalsey.

His Royal High­ness was wel­comed at the Wang by thou­sands of peo­ple along with the Druk Odiyana Foun­da­tion, who are the or­ga­niz­ers of the event.

The Foun­da­tion, rep­re­sent­ing the peo­ple, of­fered Ku Sung Thugten Men­drel to His Royal High­ness. Their Majesties, along with His Royal High­ness, of­fered prayers in the Guru Lhakhang within the statue.

The Wang, which be­gan in Fe­bru­ary, was be­ing held at the site of the Statue of Guru Rin­poche in the form of Nangsi Zil­noen at Tak­ila, ful­fill­ing a prophecy that such a statue built on this site would bring ben­e­fit to Bhutan and to all sen­tient be­ings in the world. This year is es­pe­cially aus­pi­cious for the trans­mis­sion of the Wang, as the male fire mon­key year is the birth year of Guru Rin­poche. The event con­cluded this month, which is aus­pi­cious as the month of Guru’s birth.

His Majesty granted Tokha to the devo­tees at the Wang, and in­tro­duced His Royal High­ness The Gyalsey to the peo­ple.

Their Majesties ar­rived with His Royal High­ness The Gyalsey to the east, on 11 June, which cor­re­sponds to the aus­pi­cious mon­key day of the mon­key month.

Stu­dents and thou­sands of peo­ple from var­i­ous com­mu­ni­ties across the re­gion, gath­ered at var­i­ous places along the high­way from Mon­gar to Lhuentse, joy­ously wel­comed Their Prince for the first time to the east, with Tshogchang, flow­ers and scarves.

His Royal High­ness was born in Fe­bru­ary 2016, in the year of the male fire mon­key. Lhuentse is the an­ces­tral home of the Wangchuck Dy­nasty.
